Process for 15 minutes with heat or 20 minutes, without heat. Select the developer based on the desired end result. For color deposit, correction, glazes and toning applications, reach for Color Touch Emulsion, 1.9% (6 volume). If a subtle brightening, lightening gray coverage or increased vibrancy is desired, select Color Touch Emulsion 4% (13 volume).

Wella Professionals Color Touch demi-permanent haircolor is the perfect salon tool for a variety of color correction scenarios: "too light", "too dark", "too warm" or "too cool".
When hair is "too light" and the target level is more than two levels darker than the starting level, filling the hair is recommended. Fill with Wella Professionals Color Touch to ensure even saturation and balanced color results.
STEP 1: Evaluate the starting level and select the correct fill formula based on target end result. Consider hair porosity and density when formulating.
STEP 2: Mix (1) part Wella Professionals Color Touch Shade + (2) parts Color Touch Emulsion 1.9% (6 volume).
STEP 3: Apply custom Color Touch formula to pre-shampooed, towel-dried hair. Develop up to twenty minutes.
STEP 4: Rinse Color Touch formula until the water runs clear, towel-dry.
STEP 5: Apply (1) part Color Touch "target shade" formula + (2) parts Color Touch Emulsion 1.9% (6 volume) and develop for up to twenty minutes. Consider the desired "reflect" in your final result: warm, natural or cool. Formulate accordingly.
